    Crappy Feeds Thread
    Is there a thread designated to crappy feeds and lazy affiliate managers? If not, can we start one?

    Pugster annoys me. I'm not sure about the feed, but what comes up on the new CJ link "tool" is a bunch of undated and outdated promotions showing as active.

    For example, "Need a gift idea for Valentine's Day? Extra 25% off on 925 Sterling Silver Jewelry! Code: CJ25SJ" and stuff for Mother's Day from last year.
    or this one:
    "Pugster.com fashion jewelry Buy 1 Get 1 Free Storewide to celebrate 2011 Mardi Gras! Click here and Use code:CJBCJ "

    The list goes on and on.

    Too risky to post - Either I will not get credit because they'll say it is an invalid promo or the customer won't get the discount. Beginning and End dates on promotions should be required, IMHO.

    *Also, CJ should have a way for merchants to remove from the affiliates lists (or view) any text and banners that they want to use again, but are currently not active.

    CruiseDirect - Can't figure out which columns to put things in. I constantly have to move things around. Sometimes it just isn't worth the hassle.

    Datafeeds MUST be updated with every pricing or inventory change. Otherwise, we all get accused of bait and switch!!!
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    I wouldn't even know where to begin; it would be far easier to make a "not crappy feeds" list.

    The first thing that comes to mind is an apparel merchant who has a category of "globe trotting" (and several other category names that are just as asinine). For crying out loud, just break it down into "skirts", "dresses", "jackets", etc.

    I agree. There shd be a "Feeds one can work with" thread which shd be linked from here with the text, "Merchants, if your feed isn't listed there(Feeds one can work with), then you belong here(Crappy Feeds)".
